We're thinking of doing this part-time. I'm trying to figure out if it's going to be another complicating factor in creating a good bond/relationship or whether it will be good for us. I will be with the babe probably all the time for the first three months, but after that life looks kind of hectic. It all seems kind of hazy and nebulous. EC and everything else about babies is still kind of overwhelming to me... I don't want to overload on new stuff.
On a related topic, though, I used to take care of animals in a vet clinic/kennel, and I developed a very strong intuition about who needed to potty and when. It sounds crazy, but when a dog needed to go, I'd smell urine/poop (in my imagination) and get an image/notion of the dog, even if I was far from him or her. So I can totally see how a parent would develop an intuitive knowledge about his or her child's elimination needs.
I have read the book The Diaper Free Baby. Before I read it I knew nothing about EC, and I came away with an understanding that it is completely do-able. It was pretty easy to convince my husband this wasn't a bad idea.
